HIAWASSEE, Ga – Black Lives Matter activists and counter-protesters squared off on opposite sides of Main Street. Each side attempting to get their points across to members of the community.
From 4 to 6 p.m., the Black Lives Matter protesters gathered in the town square and waved signs on the sidewalk. As many as 50 people turned out in support of the movement and the end of police brutality, according to Hiawassee Police Department Chief Paul Smith.
The activist group didn’t have a permit issued, but the police department was aware of the protest. Smith added that everyone was mainly peaceful, but law enforcement would remain on the scene until all demonstrators and counter-protesters left.
He didn’t know the second group would be parked across the street. When the BLM event began, the counter-protesters first drove back and forth on Main Street. Once many of the original group left, the counter-protesters parked with their Trump and Confederate flags waving from truck beds.
FYN spoke with both sets of protesters about why the felt the need to assemble.
“I have a strong feeling like it is the right thing to do. People have been reading [our signs], and people have been smiling, ‘God Blesses,’ you know, and other people flip us off,” explained a BLM protester. Several cars drove by and some would knock horns or yell when passing. However, some of these were directed toward the individuals on the other side of the street.
She told the story of how an African American couple who saw them brought over waters and a card. Inside the card it read, “For a black mom who is scared every day that my four black sons won’t make it home. Thank you.”
The BLM protesters went on to talk about the racism in Towns County and that some black residents were scared to attend the protest.
“We need to make them feel welcome,” they said.
“The thing is it’s about all lives. I like Trump too, but that doesn’t mean that this is wrong,” explained another protestor. She went on it say in different circumstances she would be across the street waving a Trump flag. “I’m not protesting against Trump, but [police brutality], not a black and white thing.”
However, another individual part of the BLM group disagreed with her and said it’s always been a black and white thing. No one wants it to be that way, but unfortunately, many people continue to see color.
“We just want everyone to feel equal. We want everyone to feel valued and that they matter,” was the response to what they hoped came of this protest.
The counter-protesters professed a different outlook on BLM and those associated with it. They expressed that liberals made these deaths about race. According to them, the national marches were “silly” and “stupid.”
“If we don’t stand up, then people like that run over us and then they’re trying to brainwash our kids into the way they believe, we don’t believe that way,” said one individual as they pointed across the street to the BLM protesters. “I’m sick of the racism running over all of us white people and if we don’t stand together, then people like that will run all over us.”
“We live here. We pay taxes here. I was raised here. I’ve got nothing against colored people at all,” stated another counter-protester. “Nobody here harmed anybody. We didn’t harm that black guy.”
Another point of contention was the rioters, and the media not telling the entire story. People selectively picked stories to cover and deaths to feature, according to the group. No one told of the destruction and death occurring on both sides of the issue. Numerous people have been seriously injured or died because of George Floyd’s death at the hands of the police.
“Everybody’s life matters. Every one of us is God’s children,” affirmed a male protester.
They all agreed that they “didn’t have anything against” black Americans and counted some people of color as their friends. However, they disagreed with the BLM movement because it used to incite conflict.
HPD Chief Smith gave FYN his perspective on George Floyd’s murder and police brutality:
“I don’t know any officer that supports what happened in Minneapolis. I don’t know any officer that supports police brutality. It makes us all look bad. We don’t stand for it. Those officers being arrested for what they did is the correct thing to do. The people I spoke to out here were not here to protest the police. There were here to protest racism and police brutality and I support that right away.”
At the end of the day, both groups were passionate about their beliefs. Everyone exhibited their right to free speech and to peaceably assemble under the constitution.

WASHINGTON, DC – President Donald Trump and the White House COVID-19 task force issued new guidelines for the next 15 days, including limiting gatherings to 10 people and avoiding dining in public spaces.
The 3 p.m. press conference focused on how telling Americans how they can help “flatten the curve” of the virus, so the nation can “turn the corner.”
In the guidelines issued today, Americans are highly advised to:
- Limit gatherings to 10 people or less, including in-home gatherings
- Avoid eating or drinking in restaurants, bars, or public food courts, use drive-thrus, pick-up, and delivery services
- Avoid discretionary travel – shopping trips and social visits
- Do not visit nursing homes, long-term health care, or retirement facilities
- Wash your hands
- Don’t touch your face
- Sneeze or cough into a tissue or inside of your elbow
- Disinfect used items and surfaces frequently
However, Trump cautioned that everyone may feel the effects of COVID-19 into July and August. Also, the President didn’t want to focus on the possibility of a recession at this time. He believes the markets will rebound once the virus abates.
“I think you’re going to see a tremendous, tremendous surge,” Trump said about the markets.
While the White House isn’t instituting a nationwide quarantine presently, Trump did make it clear that “hot spots” could potentially be placed under quarantine. Currently, the New Rochelle is considered a “containment zone” not a quarantined city.
Dr. Deborah Birx, White House Coronavirus Response Coordinator, added that anyone who is sick should stay home. Also, if anyone in a home is diagnosed with COVID-19, the entire house should quarantine in the home to prevent spread.
“We really want people to be separated at this time,” Birx stated. She also addressed millennials directly because changes in their behaviors could significantly affect the course of the virus. Millennials are connected to each other and can spread information across platforms.
TOWNS COUNTY, Ga – Georgia District 8 State Rep. Matt Gurtler appeared to be the only House Republican to vote against HR 882, and he asked the public to read the entire resolution before making any conclusions.
“I support [President] Trump and our Armed Forces,” Gurtler told FYN over the phone. “He’s really been trying to keep us out of [middle east] wars. I think he’s shown immense restraint in doing that. This resolution was really a constitutional issue for me.”
The non-binding resolution praised the president and the military for the successful “operation that neutralized Qasem Soleimani.” Gurtler cited HR 882 as unconstitutional due to the disregard for Article 1, Section 8, and references to past president’s foreign policy. He urged constituents to read the document for themselves and come to a conclusion.
“War is a serious thing, and we want to do it right…In the Constitution, war powers [are] delegated to the legislative branch that’s Article 1, Section 8….When you look at the constitution, I can’t pick and choose which parts I want to uphold and which ones I don’t,” said Gurtler.
“If we want to go to war with any country, lets openly debate it,” said Gurtler. “Under the war powers act, we have not been doing that. We’ve been giving all the power to the executive with many different administrations.”
“Even in the resolution, it mentions [President] George W. Bush and his foreign policy, and Trump has criticized the past two administrations overwhelmingly about getting in entangled alliances with these foreign counties,” the District 8 Rep. explained.
Here’s an excerpt from HR 882 that mentions Bush’s foreign policy:
“President George W. Bush designated Iran as a pivotal part of the “Axis of Evil” that “aggressively pursues these weapons and exports terror while an unelected few repress the Iranian people’s hope for freedom.”
Gurtler agreed that the world is better off without the Iranian General Soleimani. If the resolution only asked the public to support Trump and our troops, Gurtler said he would have voted for it.
He viewed HR 882 as a “political stunt.” The no vote isn’t a disagreement over the neutralization of Soleimani, rather the role of executive and legislative branches of government. According to Gurtler, the resolution was pushed through within 24-hours, and no one knew it was coming until it landed on their desks. “We had more pressing business to attend to if this came up later in the session, that’s fine,” he commented.
The resolution passed 93-86, just over the majority needed.
In response to claims that Gurtler’s a closet Democrat, he said:
“It’s disingenuous. You have to look at what the resolution actually says, and what it’s approving of. Republican Senators and Representatives in the U.S. House share my same concerns.”
Stan Gunter, who is Gurtler’s opposition in the 2020 race for the District 8 seat, has commented on the issue as well.
“That is a perfect example of why I got into this race,” Gunter said. “This isn’t the first time that a vote like this occurred. You can imagine what he does to his relationships with other Republicans because this bill went down the party line. The Democrats all voted against it, and he joined the Democrats.”
Gurtler released a statement on the controversial vote Friday, Jan. 17, which can be seen in it’s entirety below:
The same establishment that passed the largest tax increase in Georgia history just a few years ago, and passed another $150 million tax increase yesterday somehow has the audacity to call themselves conservative.
It’s one more reason why we must be skeptical of their messaging, they don’t care about being consistent.
If I didn’t take my job as your representative seriously I could vote based on the one sentence explanations and propaganda Ralston gives us, and repeat those lies to you. I think Georgians deserve better, and just like at the national level with Trump, I think the people are starting to see through the political theatre.
I’m writing this today because the latest attack is that I didn’t vote for a resolution. As usual the main idea is something that sounds good, and I wish they would have simply stated “We support President Trump and the brave men and women of our military.” But instead they added in a bunch of misrepresentations of our Constitution and even used George W Bush as a reference about our involvement in the middle east.
The fact that there’s any positive mention of Bush means Trump himself wouldn’t have voted for this resolution, and I’ll happily stand with him on that. The important part is the misrepresentations of the Constitution. As Trump has said over and over, we should have never gotten into these stupid wars, and ignoring our Constitution is what allowed that in the first place.
Below is my official response, and as always I hope this helps you understand where I’m coming from. Thank you for your encouragement, it makes what I’m doing possible.
From day one, President Trump has wisely pointed out that over the last couple decades, the many foreign wars that our country has been dragged into have been stupid mistakes. They have also been dreadfully costly—both in terms of treasure and more importantly, American lives. Time and time again, who has the President always singled out? The last two administrations! George W. Bush, the one who started the whole thing, and Barack Obama, the one who made it even worse—by arming the very enemies who have threatened our brave men and women of the military.
War is very serious and President Trump inherited perpetual foreign conflicts that he has tried to end. The Deep State though, along with the military-industrial complex that our President talks about, has made much of this important task nearly unachievable. These are the same people by the way that have continually lied to the American public—first about the Russia hoax, and when that didn’t work, they lied to the American people about the Ukraine. Ever since, they have tried to impeach and remove the President over much ado about nothing.
I do understand the President’s difficult position though—he needs to defend America while defending himself at the same time, and I support him in his executive position.
I, on the other hand, am part of the state legislature, which rarely has any input over matters of war and peace. When we do though, I’m going to take that responsibility seriously and as my oath requires, I will always put the Constitution first—precisely when doing so may help avoid these huge, foolish wars to begin with.
War comes at the cost of blood, sweat, tears and American lives and should always be declared by a vote in Congress according to our founders and the US Constitution in Article 1 Section 8. The legislative branch holds the sole power to declare war. Passing a resolution like this—one filled with half truths and absurd conclusions—is insulting and demeaning to the Constitution to which every member of our strong military swore an oath to protect and defend.
While I agree the Iranian terrorist deserved what happened to him, we obviously won’t always have presidents who make good decisions unilaterally. And this is why the responsibility ultimately lies with the Congress. If I can help encourage the Congress to do their Constitutional job, I’m alright with taking a few arrows along the way.
That being said, I’m quite sure many of my colleagues only had good intentions and simply wanted to support President Trump and more importantly, offer support for our troops. However, I don’t think a resolution that condones and supports the bankrupt foreign policy of Barrack Obama and George W. Bush—which our president unfortunately had to inherit—is the best way to go about doing so.
Lastly, I don’t believe that Trump himself would vote for this meaningless resolution, as he would never utter one single positive thing about Georgia W. Bush and Barack Obama’s foolish, expensive quagmires in the quicksand of the Middle East.
Thank you very much for your support…and God Bless America, our president, and the men and women of our military—I for one can’t wait to bring them home!
President Trump’s enemies started planning his impeachment the day he became president. On January 20, 2017 the Washington Post reported; “The effort to impeach President Donald John Trump is already underway. At the moment the new commander in chief was sworn in, a campaign to build public support for his impeachment went live at Impeach DonaldTrumpNow.org. Their effort is early, strategists admit. But they insist it is not premature”
As shown above, the Democrats started their efforts to impeach Trump from day one, first it was the emoluments clause, then obstruction of justice with the Comey firing, then Stormy Daniels, collusion, Quid Pro Quo, then bribery, etc, etc. Congresswoman Maxine Waters started shouting impeach 45 in early 2017.
In my opinion, Democrats and the mainstream media have demonstrated a hatred of all Republican presidents not just Trump. And their hatred of Republican presidents have hurt the country. During George Bush’s term there was a cartoon showing a radio announcement condemning Bush and a man turning to Osama Bin Laden saying; “I love your latest tape“ with the Bin Laden figure saying; “that’s not me, that’s the Democrats”
And once again, it’s the Democrats encouraging our enemies around the world with their “resistance” against Trump. Just recently, the week Trump was in Europe talking NATO, the Democrats in Congress started the debate about his impeachment. Can you imagine how encouraged a football team would be seeing the other team in a fist fight with each other? Then you can imagine how encouraged China, Russia, North Korea and Iran is watching the Democrats beat up on President Trump.
That said, how much better off would the United States and the world be if the Democrats and mainstream media were working with president Trump instead of against him? Would China have settled with Trump over tariffs if they did not see the Democrats trying to remove him? Would Russia have stopped their aggression against Ukraine if they thought a united America would act? Would North Korea and Iran have given up on atomic weapons if they thought president Trump had the support of the whole Congress and would act if they didn’t?
And last but not least, as good as the economy is, how much better would it have been if the Democrats had passed the trade agreement with Mexico and Canada last year and supported closing the loopholes in our immigration laws so illegal aliens did not take jobs away from the poorest amongst us?
I don’t recall a lot of glowing reports in the news from Democrats and the mainstream media about presidents Bush 1 and 2, and Reagan and candidates McCain and Romney. The fact is, it was during president George W Bush’s term that the condition we attribute to Trump haters (Trump derangement syndrome) was first used to describe the Bush haters (Bush derangement syndrome). The bottom line is hatred of Trump (a Republican president) is nothing new, just an intensified, continuation of hatred of Republicans by the Democrats and the media.
If you suffer from Trump Derangement Syndrome and like a very bad cold, you just can’t
shake it, you will write a parody of a best-selling children’s book, If You Give A Pig a Pancake.
(This popular children’s book was written by the duo of Laura Joffe Numeroff and Felicia
You will make book / parody, because you’re unable to create your own original thoughts, and
need to emulate someone else’s work as Fay Kanouse has done.
This book, labeled as a parody for adults, If You Give a Pig the White House, is directed at
President Donald Trump. A pig with big hair gets himself in trouble around the White House,
binge watches Fox News, eats a lot of fast food and threatens national security without a care.
Supporters of Trump, who have been called ugly names by such as Hillary Clinton, i.e.
deplorables, Biden, i.e. the dregs of society and CNN as people with 10 teeth, would probably
offended again when they see this parody in the bookstores.
Perhaps, being called pig would be a step up, as people like Kanouse believe, Trump supporters
would be pigs as well.
That would be great because PIGS play a fabulous, storied part in the welfare of humans dating
back to almost 10,000 years ago.
Really? How so, you might ask?
Fossil records show that pigs were a thriving species as early as 40 million years ago and were
first domesticated around 7,000 to 9,000 years ago by those in what is modern day China and
parts of Western Europe. https://realpigfarming.com/history-of-pigs-in-america-7c4e8b837228
Even the Romans had breed specific pigs around 3,500 years ago. Western and Southern Europe
continued to cultivate and breed specific pigs up until the 1500s.
Pigs are not native to North America. They are immigrants, just like the patriots and pilgrims of
the United States, who came to these shores to start a new life.
Pigs were brought over on the ships of Christopher Columbus and Hernando de Soto, whose
descendants became a major food source for farm families in the 1600 and 1700s with any
surplus sold as “barreled pork.”
What about Wall Street? Everyone knows the contributions and drawbacks of Wall Street.
Pigs are responsible for Wall Street. A wall was built when domesticated and feral pigs
destroyed crops on Manhattan Island. To prevent their damage, farmers erected a wall to keep
the pigs out. The avenue along the wall became known as Wall Street.
Pigs tamed the west with the pioneer families as they set out in wagon trains.
By the mid-1800s, Ohio became a major hub for moving swine. As many as 70,000 a day were
sent from Ohio to the east coast, increasing even more with the advent of the railroad and in later
years the addition of refrigerated cars.
As the decades moved on, pig farming has become big business in the United States as the
largest exporter of pork, moving 26% of the world’s total production and export.
As anyone can readily see, pigs are the backbone of the history and economy of the United
If the President is called a pig, it is because he is winning.
The United States has the best economy in the world. Unemployment is the lowest for all groups
of workers since 1969. Most members of NATO are paying their fair share of their own defense
for the first time in a long time. China is being brought to heel about stealing, copying and
reproducing intellectual property at a much lower price and for the first time, they are paying
billions in tariffs on the goods they import to the US.
The United States is now the # 1 EXPORTER of oil in the world.
The world is keeping its hands in its own pockets now more than ever.
In conclusion, if all of this history and prosperity is offensive to you only because President
Trump has brought it, you have a mental problem.
If someone had dared to write such a hateful parody / comparison of the previous president, all
hell would have broken loose and there would have been riots in the streets with calls for death
to the author.
As a citizen, no one is required to like every president that comes into the White House. It is
expected that the office of the President is respected and treated with the gravity of the station.
The office is certainly is not receiving any of that now.
The lack of manners and civility that became acceptable with the last administration and the
Democratic Party are appalling. America is feeling the effect of it in everyday society, and it is a
I’m a big believer in cause and effect. This fellow who shot up the Garlic Festival in earthquake prone Gilroy, Ca., a nineteen year old white male, a fact that makes the Leftist media happy, clearly had a serious societal problem and it’s wasn’t firearms. That he is also dead makes the Left’s narrative the primary one for the publics consumption. Just another check off in the Left’s growing attacks against America’s white European culture and heritage (white privilege) to be replaced with third world peoples, their cultures and heritage.
After the Gilroy murders, the media reported that police, in a search of the culprits premises, found white supremacy materials, an 1800’s era book “Might Makes Right,” by Ragnar Redbeard, thus confirming the left’s narrative that white people are the source of all evil in the world. What the media failed to mention however was that police also found Islamic Jihadists materials there as well. So, what’s it going to be, a disgruntled white supremacists or a killer jihadist? Take a WAG on that one!
To really understand what’s going on here, we must consider the unopposed mass migrations of third world people into Europe and now, with the Democrats help, into America. I recommend one should acquaint themselves with The Great Replacement: An Introduction to Richard von Coudenhove-Kalergi” aka: The Kalergi Plan of population replacement.” Once you read it, it should send shivers up your spine. It’s not a conspiracy theory, it’s now actually in practice.
The Gilroy shooter, whether he knew it or not, was helping the Progressives to implement the “Kalergi Plan of population replacement.” The first step of supplanting European white citizens with people of color is to politically divide the races and isolate whites, as we are witnessing now among the Democrat Candidates for President and AOC’s blathering’s. It’s the old us vs. them trick. The second step is to label their opponents derogatorily, as “white supremacists, Nazi’s or neo-Nazi’s or far-right extremists.” Don’t we hear that every day? The Gilmore shooter whether he understood it or not, acted as a justice vigilante, a frequent tactic of Jihadists willing to die perpetrating their deeds as justice against infidels.
Another thing the media failed to report that police found in searching the Gilroy shooters digs, was evidence that preparations for a “massive attack” were being contemplated. His equipment included a gas mask, bulletproof vest, computer hard drives, the book described above, as well as Jihadists materials.
While the shooter is dead and the police, presumably the FBI, are checking the disks found in the shooters home, the media is not dead and remains a clear and present danger to an uninformed public who don’t know what’s coming. Why does the media ignore the Islamic Jihadist connections and play up the white supremacists angle?
Looking for the answer, we need go no further than Kalergi, who wrote: “The man of the future will be of mixed race. Todays races and classes will gradually disappear owing to the vanishing of space, time and prejudice. The Eurasian-Negroid race of the future, similar in its appearance to the ancient Egyptians, will replace the diversity of peoples with a diversity of individuals. Instead of destroying European Judaism, Europe against her will, refined and educated this people, driving them to their future status as a leading nation through this artificial evolutionary process. It’s not surprising that the people that escaped from the Ghetto-prison, became the spiritual nobility of Europe. As a people, Jews experience the eternal struggle of quantity against quality; inferior groups against superior individuals; inferior majorities against superior minorities.” What Kalergi meant was, that peace wasn’t possible in Europe as long as separate ethnocentric nations existed in violent competition with each other. Kalergi thought individual nations and borders should disappear and to making that happen a European superstate (EU?) should be created. He also thought that the more intelligent Jews would end up ruling Europe.
For the future, Kalergi envisioned that individual European societies would be watered down by miscegenation and a new breed of easy-to-control “mongrels” created. Kalergi, son of an Austrian Count and a Japanese mother, maintained close relationships with Europe’s aristocrats and political class and was able to obtain the co-operation of many influential leaders. After the war, he brought them on board with his plans to create a “United States of Europe.” Both FDR and Winston Churchill thought Kalergi’s plan had merit.
Churchill even gave a speech in Zurich, Switzerland in 1946 when he said: “We must build a kind of United States of Europe. Much work has been done upon this task by the exertions of the Pan-European union which owes so much to Count Coudenhove-Kalergi. The structure of the United States of Europe, if well and truly built, will be such as to make the material strength of a single state less important. Small nations will count as much on large ones and gain their honor by their contribution to the common cause.”…Well, there we are, the EU.
Fascist Islam isn’t all that interested in having a Jewish Europe ruling over them. They’ll settle for miscegenation until they have enough voters to democratically create a Caliphate, but with no Jews.
Then came Trump followed by the UK’s Boris Johnson and Brexit. We’re in for a long, hard ride and it could be brutal. Be ready. Inform yourselves and never give up.
Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em!

The final word on the circus that was Mueller’s testimony, that can be safely taken away after yesterdays Democrat debacle, is that Trump won and Hillary didn’t. The Democrats are in serious damage control but, their ship is still sinking. It’s over and cannot be undone.
If nothing else, at the very least we have learned that Robert Mueller, simply by his ineptness and lack of knowledge of anything in the report that bears his name, by even it’s kindest interpretation, must be considered a co-conspirator of the Clinton cabals treasonous attempt to bring down Donald Trump and end the Trump presidency.
This is because he agreed to lend his good name and reputation as a front to the plotters and their nefarious scheme that by all accounts has collapsed as a dismal failure. In fact, the Mueller Investigation itself should be lumped into the total picture of a treasonous “coup” against President Trump started by the machinations of the Clinton campaign and the DNC using US counterintelligence laws as cover to commit their crimes.
After the day long embarrassing spectacle at the two Congressional hearings, the spin by media light weights, CNN and MSNBC, was breathtaking, both in their positive conclusions for proving Trump should be impeached and denial that things went as bad for them as it did. Wisely, many individual left-wing media reporters did acknowledged the worst for the Democrats.
But, the show must go on, so publicly congratulating themselves for their efforts, the Democrats like drowning men grasping at straws are awash in their own lies but they don’t care. Their actions and reactions should qualify the TDS crowd as truly mentally challenged, but most certainly as dangerous risks to the public who does not support them.
The worst of this two and a half year exercise in treason was that the coup plotters are known, all of them. Their motives have been revealed and their scheme(s) thwarted. What remains is for Attorney General Barr to start the last round-up, corral these cretans for federal branding, impanel Grand Juries and start the needed repairs by public trials.
Mueller acted as a shameless figurehead for the shadowy coup plotters hiding behind the pretense of personal dignity for which he was esteemed. For two plus years, Americans held their breaths under the common idea that Mueller, a Republican, a combat decorated marine officer, a long serving and capable member of the Dept. of Justice and honest Director of the FBI, stood sacrosanct in his reputation for truth Justice and the American way. But alas, “losing an illusion makes us wiser than finding a truth.”
Expect detailed examinations into Mueller’s work history. Causal inquiries have already revealed flaws in his form of applying Justice that adversely impacted innocent people beyond those affected in this particular investigation. Time is long and Justice never dies.
Mueller set his own course and it led him astray. I do not feel sorry for him. He’s pathetic and must understand that a good reputation once sullied, is sullied forever. I expect his next gig, if not in a court room as a defendant, will be at a “comic-con” convention somewhere. Let us hope so. This was an evil, tawdry business and for Mueller, an imbroglio that cannot be defended. His ratiocination skills, if his testimony was any evidence, left him long ago. Sad. Very sad.
Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em!
What has Hollywood Done Now?
Well, well, well, In yet another staged gala event awarding themselves statues and recognitions, The Golden Orbs awards ceremony, filled with Hollywood’s beautiful people dressed in black to make a visual statement about something that irks them, joined together with unbridled enthusiasm to proclaim their new messiah, Oprah Winfrey as their 2020 Presidential choice.
That won’t go well with the Democrats who still have their usual suspects, the elderly Joe Biden, Chuckie Schumer, Barry Sanders, the Indian maiden, Liz Warren, and dementia challenged Nancy Pelosi, hanging around their necks like albatrosses or hangman nooses. No, Oprah is good for preaching the Progressive line, expressing costly empathy for the poor and downtrodden, the illegals and homeless and those living in the shadows, but not as president. That simply won’t do! One presidential disaster is enough to overcome.
Admittedly, Oprah made a wonderfully stirring speech against something or other, the powerlessness of women one supposes, that could be classified right up there with Obama’s speech to the Democratic Party Convention in Chicago a few years ago. That speech, like Oprah’s, quickly brought Obama instant political recognition and then the presidency a few years later which he promptly set about “changing.” Obama was a fascist. Oprah is a products salesman.
For 2020, the elephant in the room is the sitting President, Donald Trump. He is getting things done by setting America back on it constitutional tracks, while being the constant object of left wing media derision, fake news attacks designed to undermine his administration, and personal attacks against his family, his associates and his administration. Oh, hell, attacks against anything Conservative and everything Trump.
The need to make comparisons cannot be ignored. Both Trump and Oprah are very wealthy in their own rights and that recommends them for good business sense. Trumps skills lie in recognizing where money can be made, not out of wacky ideas or from printing presses, but of seeing potential in community growth, offering people what they want and buying property to build structures that will accomplish those goals. He spreads the wealth. So does Oprah, but on a commercial scale of product identification and salesmanship. She’s very good at it.
Other skills Trump enjoys is the ability to successfully negotiate with people, to make them happy with the deal, as well as making his investors happy. That’s called Capitalism and the fall out for it is increased employment for the communities he builds in and taxes for government.
Oprah is wealthy because she knows how to sell products, save her money and spread wealth and happiness to the people she employees and the people she hocks her products to. Not too shabby, and another great example of Capitalism at work. Both are hard workers and it shows,
But Trump also saw how quickly a rogue government can steal a populations economic vitality by ignoring the rules of economics (socialism) through onerous rules and regulations. He sought to correct it by running for President with the expressed purpose of making America great again. The people bought it and he is doing exactly what he promised he would do, like Jesus kicking the money changers out of the temple. 2020 is three years away. Can Hollywood really sell us Oprah? Can she do what Trump has done? That remains to be seen, but don’t bet on it.
Remember, freedom is the goal, the constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em! (10Jan18)
The Democrat Party’s Future?
The Democrat Party, or what's left of it, is desperate. Among its priorities is looking for leadership, someone who can carry the socialist banner against Donald Trump in 2020 and win. Challenging Republican Congressmen and Senators in local elections to change the voting balance in Congress, is next. (see: ”turnoutpac.org” for a rebuke of Trumps programs.)
What are their choices? On one hand, true believers still cling to the flotsam of the shipwreck that was Hillary Clinton’s campaign featuring a near 70 year old relic of a woman closer to an institution than the presidency and, on the other hand, they have the geriatric porn writer and Independent Senator, Bernie Sanders, licking his wounds. Still hiding backstage, looking for a prompt, is the lovely and talented Indian Princess, Elizabeth Warren.
Sanders, whose shockingly compelling socialist driven campaign for the Democrat nomination, nearly upset the DNC’s own coronation plans, even after the fix was in for Hillary. It scared the hell out of ‘em. Because of their shenanigans, Sanders now threatens to split the Democrat party completely asunder. He was naively, but deliberately deceived and cheated by the DNC and he didn’t know it, so he has hardened his own determination and the hearts of his obsessive followers, to change things. Read the book, don’t wait for the movie.
Sanders is an avowed Socialist, not a true Democrat. He will appeal to a large chunk of youthful, once sure democrat voting millennials as he rallies them with the promise that government will become their papa, their mama and their religion and should provide for them all the free stuff they can’t otherwise afford. (I say ‘should’ because, there ain’t no money folks).
The TrainDemocrats.org people are placing their bets on the phony Indian princess, Elizabeth Warren. They have published an on-line survey called the Warren-Leadership- Survey, stating:
“Since Trump became President, Elizabeth Warren has:
•Spoke out on the Senate floor AGAINST Trump’s cabinet picks,
•Gone all in to PROTECT Obamacare from Trump’s attacks,
•And publicly DEMANDED answers on Trump’s ties to Russia….”
“Listen — Elizabeth Warren is leading the charge against Trump. That’s why we’re collecting feedback from a small selection of our supporters on Elizabeth Warren’s leadership.” If you want a bit of fun, go to the Democrat site(s) and take their survey’s.
As demonstrations of leadership, the three items listed about Warrens achievements are basically examples of her being present in chambers when a vote was called. Three key action words, “Against, Protect and Defend” are included simply because they are action words. All politicians do it, even ours. Of concern for Warren however, is the real possibility that voters in her home state may reject her re-election bid for a second six year term. That remains to be seen of course so, we await the results with baited anticipation.
Who else do they have who could possibly stand for POTUS? Count any Democratic Senator or Congressman out. In Hillary’s defeat many have left enough of a trail of nonsense scattered with tidbits of Marxism and Progressive Socialism, that they could hardly withstand the withering questioning of even Chis Wallace of Fox News Sunday, let alone an energized conservative base. Republicans impeding Trump should take warning as well. They can easily be primarried.
Remember, freedom is the goal the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em!
Have we already forgotten the Elian Gonzales fiasco when Bill Clinton’s Attorney General sent in her Storm Troopers, agents encased in Kevlar, armed to the teeth, to kidnap one little Cuban refugee boy and forcibly return him to Father Fidel? The one scene that remains locked in the memory is the frightened wee lad huddled in a closet with a masked and helmeted federal agent shoving an AR-15 in his face.
Do we forget Waco, Tx. where Storm Troopers attacked a religious compound with a tank and an army of Federal Agents on some BS pretext to stop them from practicing their religious beliefs? In the ensuing melee, the Feds crashed their RV into the building setting it ablaze and burning nearly sixty people to death, most of them little children.
Before their sacrificial immolation to the gods of Socialist Progressivism, the Waco bunch, Branch Meridians, sought to protect themselves by the last constitutional means available to them, the 2nd Amendment, and paid the supreme penalty for their perfidy. Sadly, a few agents got in the way of return fire and were hit, yet, the progressive government of Bill Clinton found justification in the governments criminal action and the whole sad event was soon forgotten.
Ruby Ridge is another case remindful of the governments application of Gestapo tactics, also used during the Clinton administration. The public, seeing what was unfolding couldn’t believe what was happening, right here in our America. A woman holding her baby, inside the door of her home, was shot dead by a federal sniper and, after all was said and done, the target of their attack still went free and the govt. had to pay him reparations, fees and expenses. They could never return to him his wife and mother of his child.
Now, with the Progressive Deep State still in functional control of the DoJ and the FBI, early morning raids by a host of armed federal agents, CNN in tow to record their bravery, pounded on the door of their target, a sixty-eight year old man, demanding he immediately open up and let them in. That is Gestapo and, I might add, Soviet KGB style terrorism to their own populous, to demonstrate, in the world theater of government inevitability, that we deplorable’s had better not resist when they come after us no matter the pretext.
At the moment, even as Special Prosecutor Mueller’s case against President Trump collapses, the object of what we are witnessing remains the Deep States desperate need to destroy Donald Trump, before he can finish God’s work. Trump is probably the best and most effective real leader America has seen since Abe Lincoln.
The current House of Representatives under the leadership of demented House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, will squander their next two years fruitlessly protecting Mueller and his important inquiries into the already discredited Trump-Russian collusion nonsense, while obstructing the Presidents determined efforts to tear down Obama’s destructive legacy of incompetence, and prevent him, through lawsuits filed in cooperative progressive manned federal courts, from completing the goals he promised and we want.
Progressivism is a curse on society. It has no constructive alternative to any society based on freedom and liberty. When in control, they must “lead from behind” (push), mandate solutions that fit all, requiring all citizens to comply. And, they must squander tax payer money on importing voters, by hook or crook, that will keep them in power. Power is their opiate.
Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the only way. Now, go get ‘em!
I might consider it important to be even remotely concerned by the result of the Manafort, Cohen
witch trials, that are solely designed to reverse the voters choice in 2016, when I see Hillary
Clinton and her cabal of criminal enablers headed for prison or the hangman’s scaffold.
Every member of the “deep state” that supported the Hillary Clinton nonsense after the election,
dedicated to bringing down Trump, has engaged in a treasonous act that screams for retribution
yet, there she is, reorganizing herself, ostensibly to have another go in 2020 at ruining America.
Trump threw a dagger into the heart of the forth estate, the Left Wing Media, when he called
them the enemy of the state and they can’t pull the dagger out because he was right. When the
media fails to report news as it happens but becomes instead, shills for socialism, doing all in
their power to ignore Trumps triumphs while conniving to implicate him in unproven collusion
schemes that Hillary Clinton and the DNC cooked up, then they correctly stand accused.
Why does the Left Wing media ignore another brutal murder of an American citizen by an
Illegal, once a DACA claimant, by referring to the victim, in passing, as “that girl in Iowa?” Why
does Pocahontas, a wanna-be Socialist candidate for President, when asked her opinion about
the brutal murder of young Mollie Tibbett's by an illegal alien, answer with some slop about
babies being separated from their families at the border? The murders of Americans by illegal
immigrants, like Mollie Tibbett's in Iowa and Kate Steinlie in San Francisco, make no impression
at all on members of the POPO (Party of Perpetual Outrage), i.e.: the Democrats. Why?
Because they simply do not care. They need voters and as both those young murdered women,
and others, are already dead, their opinion doesn’t count anymore.
PoPo’s give no thought of course that both of the girls were separated from their own families,
forever. If the People are the State, then yes, the media stands as its enemy. “The enumeration
in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained
by the people”… 9th amendment. Perhaps the people need to establish courts to address these
high crimes and misdemeanors by government officials, if those we pay to protect us, won’t.
Yes, I realize we’re talking “extra-judicial” proceedings here but the point must come, as surely it
will, that for its own protection the “deplorable’s” must take preemptive action or be crushed
under the heel of totalitarianism. It’s the reason it’s important to preserve the 2nd amendment.
The PoPo’s have no compunction launching their Antifa’s and BLM’s against us, do they?
Michale Cohen, Trump’s once personal legal adviser, wasn’t found guilty of anything. He simply
agreed to a plea bargain with the devil. The issue of Trump’s alleged collusion, after a years
intrusion by Mueller into what has already been exposed as a PoPo scheme directed by Hillary
Clinton and facilitated by the corrupted DoJ and FBI, still go unanswered. We are told Hillary
was exonerated (by FBI Director Comey). How can that possibly be? Where in all the
Constitutional rules that govern America’s laws, does an FBI Director have the power of
exonerating any criminal without at least a Grand Jury proceeding? And that’s DoJ’s job.
Yet, despite all the schemes of the ‘PoPo’s, there stands Trump still erasing the legacy of the
most harmful president we have ever experienced. Trump is saving America and the PoPo’s
can’t take it anymore. Trump’s filled rallies are proof enough of that. He speaks to the people
and the people, the real state, are listening.
Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way, now, go get’m (22Aug18).
The Blame Game
The few times the US government has shut down in past couple of decades, the Republicans have been blamed. Why? Because the Democrats said so. Now, the Democrats, even in their minority demand a DACA resolution favorable to them before any budget deal to finance the government can proceed. Why is that? We kicked the Democrats, indeed the whole corrupt Democrat political machine out of any authority, over three successive election cycles. I reckon we’ve got it all. Let’s use it. Why are we still afraid to do something positive?
The Schumer Shutdown represents the epitome of Democratic playbook antics that have for years stymied Republican efforts to have a Constitutional Government instead of a corrupt one. Why? Schumer still believes he can hang this on Trump and the Republicans. Historically, Republicans, fearful of legislative combat with the Democrats, have always caved lest they be called racists and bigots..….until Donald Trump.
Democrat hypocrisy is often cited but the word “Hypocrite,” when flung at Democrats has no poison in it because Democrats refuse to react to it. Too, most voters who dwell happily in the in the Democrat sheepfold don’t know what it means anyway. Republicans need to use different words like liars, cheats and thieves. Everybody knows those words because that’s exactly what the Democrat party is, a collection of liars, cheats and thieves. “Dickie” Durban is the most recent prime example of one of these creatures, not to neglect Chuckie Schumer himself.
Republican politicians, at least those that hide their principles by calling themselves “moderates” or “compassionate conservatives,“ are deathly afraid of being accused of racism or bigotry, an accusation the Leftist media is always happy to promote. So, for years, the US government has been guided by the systemic ‘fear’ that has enabled the Socialist agenda.
08 November, 2016 should have ended all that, yet here we are, our legislators in a deadlock with a corrupt minority party over government funding because an unconstitutional, illegal, Executive Order, is considered by them to have the rule of law when it does not. The consequences are enormous for the rule of law, a return to which is essential if we are to help Trump Make America Great again. Tea Parties, take notice.
To ignore the Constitution for so many years, as the Democrats have done, appears to have become the ‘norm’ instead of the exceptional method of running a government. Now a conservative leader is standing up to the Democrats and their socialist agenda and the Republicans can’t seem to get a handle on how to move forward. Good ol’ Harry Reid showed us the way.
If the Republicans want to get moving, do as Harry Reid did, eliminate the senate 60 vote filibuster rule and get on with making America Great Again. I remind Republicans, that Democrats are the minority and should stay that way forever. As for filibuster, if fairness is all that important, than require the Senators, in fact, to stand in the well and filibuster. Then the whole country will know where their Senator really stands.
In their minority, obstructionism is the only tool Democrats have left. Trump is dismantling their years of hard work to drag America firmly into the Socialist camp and ultimately the One World Order scheme. The Democrats love of Marxist-Socialist dogma remains a continuing threat to a Constitutional America. It’s time to move on no matter how painful it might be.
Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em! (21Jan18)
Tax Incentives, Why?
So, Marco Rubio is the newest wannabe ‘Judas’ in the Republican stable. In the GOP Tax reform plan he demands that the tax reform plan must increase child tax credit incentives to the poor, or he won’t vote for it. This is so he can get re-elected in a Florida now filling up with refugees from hurricane wrecked Puerto Rico, not to mention Obama’s islamists, poverty fleeing Haitians and third worlders swarming across our southern borders to join in the fray.
We would expect Join McCain to do it. He would claim to see some imminent danger to the Republic if he deigned to support a Trump initiative that would allow Americans to keep more of their own earnings so, he would vote against it. But, little Marco? Naw!
Everything government does is based on a supposed “crisis of human affairs.” Who, exactly determines what that crisis is or should be? Why, politicians of course! California forest fires might fit the definition but people should have fire insurance and not build homes in foothills covered with brush that has the flashpoint of gasoline. The flooding and destruction that comes with hurricanes, unusual storms, zombie apocalypse and etc. could be a concern for government, but not the federal government. It’s not in their job description (the Constitution)! If you want to live in a flood zone, buy insurance. “Ya pays your money you takes your chances.”
What little Marco wants is that you and I, as wage earning tax payers, and we do pay our taxes in order to avoid going to jail, allow the government to take a bit more of those taxes we pay and squander it on other people, basically third worlders unqualified to be productive Americans anyway. Why are they allowed to receive incentives from us the the plight of our veterans is ignored. Why should illegals be rewarded without expending the effort required to get it?
As I understand it, Puerto Rico needs to be rebuilt. So does Haiti. Why are those people here in our country then, living nearly for free? We can’t afford ‘em anymore. Politicians are solely responsible for this near financial disaster of good intentions we are now facing yet, like lil Marco, they keep adding on “benefits” that we can no longer afford. Admittedly, right now, some Americans exult at the rising stock market earning big bucks. When the Europeans stop sending their money here to avoid their own coming EU collapse, and the cash pool available for our government to dip into ends and then we’ll have to face the consequences. It will not be happy.
I should think that welfare, including child incentive tax credits, should have strict, enforceable limits. Recipients of government welfare should be absolutely limited to three children and NO more. Besides, I cannot find one amendment in the US Constitution that permits government to dispense taxpayer money for any other purpose than those enumerated therein. I do read in the 10th Amendment, words that precisely limits what the federal government can and cannot do and that includes doing good deeds. Doing good deeds should belong to the states.
This form of thinking, spending our money outside that permitted by the constitution, is done by politicians who want to keep their jobs by showing favoritism to the abundant numbers of poor voters who will, naturally, vote to maintain free government stuff. If welfare was totally returned to the States, as the 10th amendment allows, the federal deficit and debt, will depress, along with the taxes they steal, and we will all be happier. Taxpayers in states near financial collapses, like California, Illinois and Connecticut are now experiencing, would also put an end to that foolishness. So would term limits for federal politicians. We should have the incentive to spend or save our own money not give it to government to spend foolishly. Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em! (15Dec17)
The Clinton Saga Continues
The Clinton’s years of association with big cash donors aside, many now being outed as sexual predators, pedophiles and rapists, the Clinton’s actual collusion with the Russians, as compared to what they claim Trump did, is becoming a point of fact, not a phony $6 million dossier filled with rumors, lies and innuendos.
Uranium ore now becomes center to our Clinton story with implications that have revealed Obama’s government to be despotic and its citizens targets. The implications extend far beyond the money grubbing underway by greedy politicians from special interests, it is the unbridled and unconstitutional power of government to seize private property and kill to do it.
I am referring to the standoff last year between the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Oregon State Police and local law enforcement, pitted against the Hammond family ranch at Burns, Oregon that involved other concerned citizens as protesters occupying the Malheur Game Refuge. The government’s siege of the park gave the story legitimacy while the back story was ignored. It’s a dark story indeed.
Recall that the BLM lost public’s approval when they were forced to stand down in their attempt to seize the property of the Bundy Ranch in Nevada on piddling allegations that Bundy’s cattle were illegally grazing on open range, government (BLM) land. Oh, woe! It was reported then that Senate majority leader, Harry Reid (D-Nv) wanted the land to resell to a solar power company, supposedly to advance Obama’s green energy scheme and to help defray the cost of his retirement. Maybe!
Apart from the fact that some armed Bundy Ranch supporters went to Burns, Ore. to assist the Hammond’s in what appears to be another trumped-up case to allow the BLM to seize the their ranch, what is the connection? It’s uranium, and is a scandal that could take down the Clintons once and for all.
The Hill broke the story as far back as 2009. Clinton, as Secretary of State, approved the sale of 20% of American uranium to Russia through a Canadian businessman, a big donor to the Clinton Foundation. He was representing a Russian front Canadian mining business called Uranium one. The FBI was investigating the proposed deal and successfully inserted an undercover agent who has subsequently been gagged from even talking to Congress about it.
The Obama administration and the Clintons (Bill Clinton received a half million dollars for delivering a speech in Moscow) defended their actions insisting there was no evidence that any Russians or donors engaged in wrongdoing and there was no national security reason for any member of congress to oppose the Uranium One deal. The deal was clear and above board said Clinton’s State Department. But was it?
The Hill reported that documents from the FBI, the Department of Energy and a Federal Court shows the FBI in fact had gathered substantial evidence that Russian businessman Vadim Mikerin was engaged in wrongdoing starting in 2009, well before the committee’s decision and, was, in fact, overseeing Putin’s nuclear expansion inside the United States.
Where is this uranium? It’s in Burns, Oregon. To quote the source: “The central part of the Malheur Refuge Protest was the Hammond family, and their ranch outside of Burns, Oregon. Dwight and Steven Hammond were ordered to return to prison by the Federal government over a small range backfire. They had previously served out the sentence reluctantly imposed on them by Judge Hogan.” “During the court preceding the Hammond’s were forced to grant the BLM first right of refusal. If the Hammond’s ever sold their ranch they would have to sell it to the BLM.” “It was during this turbulent time that the political implications of Uranium One were shouted out over the internet.“ (not the main stream media, note.)
Source: INTELLIHUB: “Clinton Foundation took massive payoffs, promised Hammond Ranch and other publicly owned lands to Russians along with one-fifth of our uranium ore.” ”The Hammond’s ranch and other ranch lands surrounding the refuge sit atop a vast swath of precious metals, minerals, and uranium that’s heavily desired by not only the federal government but foreign entities as well.”
“Oregon Energy, L.L.C. (formally Uranium One) is interested in developing a 17-Claim parcel of land known as the Aurora Project through an open pit mining method. Besides the mine, there would be a processing mill. The claim area occupies about 450 acres and is also referred to as the “New U” uranium claims.”
Source: News-Target also reported: “Massive Cover-up. BLM leases Hammond ranch land to Russia through donors to the Clinton Foundation for its uranium. Evidence has surfaced that the BLM has been taking land with plans to lease it to Clinton Foundation donors.”
“Russia gradually gained control of Uranium One, a major Russian mining company, in three separate transactions from 2009 to 2013, while Hillary Clinton served as Secretary of State. Canadian records reveal that the company’s chairman used his own family foundation to make four donations to the Clinton Foundation during that time, resulting in a sum contribution of $2.35 million. Secretary Clinton approved the deal for Russia soon after her family’s slush fund received the donations. Now, Vladimir Putin controls 20 percent of all uranium production capacity in the U.S.”
The previous data was as indicated, copied from open sources. The Burns, Oregon refuge siege incident, that included the murder of one protester at a police checkpoint, was another blatant example of a corrupt (Marxist leaning) government running rough-shod over its citizens, for the financial benefit of one of its “elites” (the Clintons).
Americans are wising up and are getting sick and tired of it. The Federal government, with a One World Government attitude in the hands of corrupt politicians lining their pockets with taxpayer dollars, must come to an end. Throw in the Clinton’s cozy connections with Hollywood’s “A- List” of pedophilia admirers and the corruption and criminality of our political leaders in the Obama administration becomes clearer.
It’s time for term limits to be seriously considered as a corrective to career politicians whose entire reason to exist is to gain personal wealth off the unsuspecting American taxpayer, American security and sovereignty be damned. Trump is their main danger.
Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em! (27Oct2017)
